A FLEET of 200mph McLarens are brought to a halt – by PC Plod.
The five supercars were stopped by police in a diesel BMW for driving in excess of 100mph on the A303 in Wiltshire.
An official said: “They could have caused a pile-up and killed innocent people.”
In an online post, officers said: “Managed to stop five McLarens on the A303 after the pack were traveling in excess of 100mph and driving in close proximity to themselves and the public.”
“This is not a race track, so take your ‘driving experience’ with you and sign the traffic offense report.”
When asked how they managed to catch up with the supercars, Wiltshire Police joked: “Well, they can only go a few miles before they have to stop to take photos of their cars.”
A traffic police officer added: “The drivers might have thought they were Lewis Hamilton, but it was madness to be driving so fast on a normal public main road in such a powerful car.”
“Let’s hope the courts agree with them.”
It was believed the cars were on their way to a track day in nearby Thruxton when they were stopped.
A McLaren spokesman said: “We are aware of this. It was a group of McLaren enthusiasts who were stopped by the police.
“It was not a promotional or testing activity.”
